Editors' Review

Thanks to this program's step-by-step tips, managing your files and folders is as simple as a few clicks of your mouse. GoodSync successfully synchronized important files between folders on our computer, as well as on our USB device.

To a novice, the user interface might appear a bit overwhelming; however, step-by-step pop-up windows will quickly guide you through navigating the program. All we had to do was browse for the two folders that we wanted to synchronize. We were even able to browse for files on external devices, including a USB thumb drive. The program quickly analyzed our folders and displayed their contents into two separate panels. We were able to pick out the specific files to include in the synchronization and, using the Sync feature, we synced the folders so that they each contained the same files. We were able to view all of the changes, as well as any conflicts or errors. You can apply filters using the Program Options menu.

The program doesn't include a built-in help feature, but it does feature an online manual and FAQ through the publisher's Web site, and the 30-day trial is more than enough time to find your bearings. We highly recommend this file synchronization tool for all user levels.

"FAVORITE FILE SYNC/BACKUP APP"

June 06, 2013  |  By jeremykgriffith

 |  Version: GoodSync 8.4

Pros

IT WORKS EXACTLY THE WAY IT SHOULD. THEY UPDATE IT OFTEN AN ARE CONSTANTLY IMPROVING IT. I ACTUALLY PAID FOR THIS SOFTWARE AS I LOVE IT SO MUCH AND WANT TO SUPPORT THE DEVELOPERS.

Cons

NO CONS COME TO MIND

Summary

DEFINITELY THE BEST. OUT OF ALL THE SOFTWARE I HAVE TRIED FOR FILE SYNC/BACKUP, THIS IS MY FAVORITE!

"Excellent bi-directional sync tool."

May 27, 2013  |  By APBHFLD

 |  Version: GoodSync 8.4

Pros

After some set-up issue s (all of my own doing), I got the system set up exactly how I need it. The sync tool performs predictably, without any problems every time I invoke it.

Cons

A clearer set of instructions on how to use GoodSync's remote set up would make the implementation go faster. Setting up the tool to work over a network needs to be described more clearly in the instructions.

Summary

In my opinion, this is an outstanding tool that keeps all your folders in constant synchronization regardless of the media and devices. I was able to sync my tablet with my home station, even though I was 1500 miles away. The method used by GoodSync (peer-to-peer connection) made this possible. I am duly impressed.

"Syncs my phone! Yay!"

December 19, 2010  |  By yeobloke

 |  Version: GoodSync 8.4

Pros

I can now sync what I want with my Windows based phone (HTC S620), and easily too.

Cons

Still need ActiveSync to 'get into' phone, probably more Windows problem than GoodSyncs

Summary

I LOATHE Windows ActiveSync, there seems to be no way of managing what you want to download, and there is no other choice... until now... By removing ActiveSync, then reinstalling, and ensuring NO boxes were ticked, it now merely allows access to the phone, so I then use GoodSync to Sync only the things I want to.
Great Product, Thanks.

"Great backup or sync program"

December 15, 2010  |  By smithdou99

 |  Version: GoodSync 8.4

Pros

Once the program is set up it requires two buttons to backup. One to check current files and the second to synchronize.

Cons

You need to decide if you want to synchronize or backup between two backup devices.

Summary

I use it vevry day to backup to a usb hard drive.

"Easy to use and very efficient"

December 09, 2010  |  By henryevans

 |  Version: GoodSync 8.4

Pros

Clear Windows Explorer style interface allowing you to see what is selected and what is being backed up and where

Cons

Unable to select files by wildcard. This affect accounting programs which, by default, store data files in the same directory as the program. I got round this by putting the datafiles in their own folder.

Summary

All in all a very useful piece of software providing security of data. As its free for the small user, and can back up via FTP to any webstore, as well as CD, USB and external HD there is no reason why anyone need lose valuable info. You can even back up email current and archived IF you know where to find the directories in Windows.

 |  Version: GoodSync 8.4

Pros

Super fast, verbose in a good way, highly flexible

Interface screen would be daunting for tech-averse users.

Far far better than Second Copy, which I relied on for YEARS. Wish I had found Good Synch sooner. Thrilled that it's now also available for the Mac.
